Popular online retailer Amazon Italy may have just leaked the fourth playable character in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. The box-art for the Wii U exclusive now features the long-standing Cranky Kong.

Popular online retailer Amazon UK has joined GAME in slashing the price of the recently released New Super Mario Bros U and New Super Luigi U 32GB Premium Wii U bundle. Presumably the console still isn’t selling as well as expected in the United Kingdom, so it’s likely we will see more discounts in the run up to Christmas. Still, this is a great bundle if you haven’t already picked up a Wii U.
Listen! Legend of Zelda site Zelda Informer has made yet another impressive find, with this majestic Ocarina of Time skin cover for 2DS that’s currently selling on Amazon.

One franchise clearly dominates the video games chart, with Activision’s blockbuster Call of Duty series taking the top three spots in the all-time video games chart. This year’s Grand Theft Auto V may well overtake Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 at the top of the list as it already takes fourth place after just one month on sale. EA’s FIFA football series is the other big franchise, taking the sixth, seventh and eighth places. Fantasy epic The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim takes ninth place, and Wii title Zumba Fitness takes the number ten spot, impressive considering it’s the only title in the list which isn’t multiplatform.
“ Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto and FIFA are three of the largest entertainment franchises in the world, so it’s no surprise to see them dominating the top ten best-selling games chart. The success of Skyrim suggests that there is a real appetite for epic fantasy games, whilst Zumba Fitness’s appearance in tenth place shows just how big Nintendo Wii’s fanbase is in the UK.”
